For the third year running, we are delighted to announce that our League of Legends team will be attending Worlds! The team battled their way through the European Gauntlet, defeating Splyce and Summer Split finalists, Schalke 04. In the first best-of-5, the team took down Splyce in a grinding 3-2 series, with Hjarnan being awarded Player of the Series. Then, in the Regional final, the team had an incredible showing against Schalke 04, taking the third seed in an impressive 3-1 victory. Jankos was awarded Player of the Series. They join Fnatic and Vitality to represent Europe as the third seed.
